7 Reasons Why You Need a Washable Rug

Sep 2, 2020

Fortunately, there is now a thing called machine washable rugs you can wash in your washing machine. Some people might call them nice-to-haves, but for us, they are lifesavers! If you’re still questioning whether you need them or not, here are 7 reasons why you need a washable rug and why they’re good investments for your home.

IF You have kids…

We have heard people say they have given up on buying rugs for their homes after they’ve had kids. Some just create no-kids-allowed zones in their houses. We at THE RUGS believe you don’t need to sacrifice style for practicality. That’s why we made our rugs stain-resistant, and of course, machine washable, ideal for high-traffic homes where unavoidable spills, stains, accidents and messes happen.
To wash, simply put it in the washing machine. All our washable rugs fit comfortably in a 7 kg washing machine!

IF You have pets...

Spills, accidents, muddy paws—pets are famous for leaving their marks everywhere, it is in their nature. While this is normal, this shouldn’t stop you from having rugs around your home. That’s the beauty of having a pet-friendly rug.

Not only do rugs elevate your room’s aesthetic, but they also protect your pets and kids from slipping and sliding while playing. Our Caimas Collection washable rugs have a non-slip latex backing, which makes it stick to floor easily.

IF You are sensitive to allergens...

Let’s face it: carpets and high-pile rugs are home for allergens. They collect dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen, microscopic insect parts and who knows what else. Some people are more tolerant to these environmental irritants, but if you’re allergic or sensitive to these substances, you’re probably better off with a low-pile rug that you can also wash as often as needed.

IF You have high-traffic areas that easily get dirty...

Whether it’s the hallway or kitchen that leads out to the patio or backyard, we all have those spaces that get the most foot traffic. But just because spaces easily get dirty, it doesn’t mean you can’t decorate them anymore. What you’ll need is more resilient to muddy paws and shoes. Of course, you can always ask people to remove their shoes before coming in—but just in case they don’t, at least you have a backup plan with our washable rugs.

IF You want a light and bright room style...

Modern farmhouse, Modern Mediterranean and Scandinavian styles are some of today’s hottest home decor trends feature the all-white-and-bright motif. Unfortunately, a lighter-coloured rug, like white, cream, ivory or beige rugs, are much harder to maintain and keep clean—but not if you have a washable rug.
So go ahead, get that bright-coloured rug you’ve always wanted with our wide range of designs of light-coloured machine washable rugs.

You don’t have time or a budget for professional rug cleaning services...

As hoovering your rug isn’t enough to remove pollutants and allergens, most experts recommend getting your rugs professionally cleaned at least once a year. Most companies charge at least £19 for a small size rug, which means a standard 200×290 cm size rug would cost even more. And this is if you can stand not washing your rug for an entire year!
So Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just wash your rug into your washing machine?

IF You care about the environment and so do we...

Aside from the additional savings, you get from not having to buy rugs frequently, having a washable rug that you can use and re-use for a long time is just better for the environment. Those stained rugs we all throw away take up a lot of space in the landfill, and they don’t biodegrade easily.

At THE RUGS, we use recyclable packages, which creates little to no waste during manufacturing. Additionally, we use non-toxic glue to bond the layers of our rugs, making our rugs safer to use around pets and kids and approved by Oeko-Tex certificate.

We love our washable rugs, and we think you’ll love it too! But don’t take it from us—click here to read what other people say about our rugs!
